Abstract: The role of radiographer is ever-changing due to the advances in medical technology and its increasing demand and importance of both therapeutic and diagnostic imaging. The researcher was prompted to compare and discuss the role of a radiographer in the two countries, Malta and Kenya of which the researcher is very familiar with. One of the objectives of this study is to find out whether the role greatly differs due to certain factors which include race, culture and religion. The research was done via a closed formatted questionnaire which was randomly distributed to radiographers of the same ranking/positions. A pilot study was done by interviewing a representing radiographer from each country, with the theme being their experiences in working as a radiographer in that particular hospital. A quality testing of the questionnaire was also passed on through these radiographers and changes made to the questionnaire if need be, prior to sending it out at the commencement of the research process. The results of this study demonstrate the differences and similarities in the roles of radiographer in the two radiology departments St.Lukes Hospital, Malta and Agakhan Hospital, Kenya. The results of this study will be submitted to the two departments. In conclusion, recommendations were proposed on the basis of the findings.
